An Alternative Good Friday with The Altered Hours, Aul Boy and The Barbiturates

Cork based psychedelia-tinged rock band The Altered Hours return to Donegal to headline an evening of alternative music at the Regional Cultural Centre on Friday 30th March.

The Altered Hours previously headlined the Earagail Arts Festival stage the brilliant Swell Festival on Arranmore Island and featured at the first Distorted Perspectives Festival in Letterkenny. Their sound exists in a swirl of the psychedelic and hypnotic. Their live shows are known for their intensity and the band’s ability to envelope both themselves and the crowd in their sound.

The five-piece take the black-clad noise pop of The Jesus and Mary Chain and add an element of the gothic, with debut album ‘In Heat Not Sorry’ winning fans across Europe.

Also appearing are new Derry favourites The Barbiturates, a 5 piece neo-psychedelic pop band, and Donegal’s fuzzy alt-rock group Aul Boy, both formidable and exiting live acts making waves in the North West.

Friday 30th March, 8pm

Tickets are €10. Advanced booking recommended.  BUY TICKETS HERE

This is a non-seated and BYOB event. Glass bottles are prohibited.

“The Altered Hours are not a band to be pinned down too neatly. The layered, cyclical guitars bounce between shoegaze detachment, psychocandy aggression and chiming raga folk. The intertwining vocals of Cathal Mac Gabhann and Elaine Howley float somewhere above it all, by turns transcendent and paranoid”  – The Irish Times
